Then it will probably bottom about 41.... I hate setting goals anymore. I had some ugly beat up 1 oz bars sitten on my desk ready to go trade for silver at 65:1.... couldnt do it. 70 was the goal.

I guess the good news is I did buy into a little silver on the dip, and I wont be as greedy when it comes time to roll it into Yeller this time.
Yeah I think you have to set goals but keep from becoming too rigid. Have a plan in mind and be willing to execute on the heels of a big move. The other thing is to have it broken up into increments. I might make a trade at 45 or 50 but would have plenty more put back in case the ratio keeps dropping. Finally, understand that your trades will never be perfect when seen through the light of the retrospectoscope. It is easy to say what the right play would have been after the dust settles. It is the individual who uses their understanding and has the courage to push forward that reaps the benefits. No second guessing, just the application of knowledge gained and a willingness to make a stand and carry through with a well reasoned decision.

What makes you say that?
1 14k Gold wedding ring fished out of Lake Michigan = $249 scrap Gold value.

1 same size silver ring fished out of Lake Michigan = $ 6.70 scrap.

Same amount of work involved to acquire each.

I see things a little differently when it comes to metals and what's actually precious, that's all. :cheerful:

Joe reminds me of a Frankie Valli or Neil Diamond type. Ya' know you're not gonna' hear anything new from them, and most of us got tired of 'em a long time ago... if we ever even cared for that sort of drivel in the first place. But he must think somewhere out there, there's gotta' be some poor sap that still wants to listen to him sing the same tired old song over and over again, 'cause he keeps coming back with the same ol' act as always.

Very true. I will assure you that Spring Training is coming! ;)
Winter workouts come first. This is when hitting and pitching coaches really get to coach.

I'll be checking out the AZ winter league. ;)

Damn, am I addicted?
How could you not be addicted to baseball? It takes a certain appreciation for a skillset that's not always as flashy as some sports, but if you've got the gene there's no denying it.

Edit: And for those that will say we've gone off topic, not true. Ever heard of a "Gold Glove" award? My son's HS team also has skills/fitness test that earns them a spot on "Silver Spike" role. There's platinum blondes in the stands... and the golden boys of summer... and titanium necklaces and copper arm bands... and sinkers... and lots and lots of charts and ratios and stats... just made for a PM enthusiast!

And did I mention the ol' double-switch? That's kinda' like knowing when to trade the GSR. Do it right and it can help you win the game! It is just a game, after all.

I think that's the most rare play in baseball. I'll have to do some Google work on that.
Top of the ninth men on first and second no outs coach has the players running on the 3-2 pitch. Hard liner up the middle, shortstop comes across with a circus catch, steps on second base and tags the advancing runner coming off first. Oula - game over!





(crowd reacts wildly as the GSR dips below sixty again. Daily news news astrology section notes that we will see 50 before we see 70)

Some more baseball trivia (first correct answer gets an Atta" Boy:D)

What is the least number of pitches a pitcher can throw in a complete 9-inning game of baseball?

Edit with a probability of happening. Licking fingers for a walk and pickoff will never happen 27 batters in a row. Nor will every batter be called for a strike for changing batters boxes while pitcher is set, 81 times in a row.

5 strikeouts in one half inning is pretty rare (but not a single play like the triple play).

This kid had to do it to close out a shutout: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/highs...s-record-striking-5-one-inning-172319870.html

It is also conceivable for an unassisted triple play without a fielder touching the ball. While possible, it will be nearly impossible to achieve.

Any guesses?
Obviously not seen very many 10U fastpitch softball games. I coached a team last year where pitcher had 6 in one inning. 9 year old catchers suck!!!

Zero.

All 27 batters could be called out (upon challenge from the opposing manager) for simply batting out of turn.

Not gonna happen, but in theory it could.

It would seem that 27 pitches is the minimum... UNLESS we're talking HS/college rules where a batter can be intentionally walked without throwing a pitch, in which case it's technically 0 pitches (IBB all batters and pick them off on the bases).

The above does not take automatic outs into consideration (when batter is missing - sometimes seen in youth baseball with short roster/ player ejected or mommy makes them leave game for piano practice:)), but I don't recall ever seeing that in pro ball.

EDIT: Was typing when SB posted, but he has a point. Batting out of turn could certainly effect the pitch-count. However, I don't believe you could have a zero-pitch game strictly on all batters being out of order. If the out-of-turn is discovered before a pitch is thrown, I don't think it's an out.

EDIT of EDIT: In fact, I just looked up the rule. Would still need a pitch thrown. The difference it makes is, it could be a one-pitch hit that turns into an out. So, I'll change my answer. Batting out of order should have no effect on pitch-count unless the pitcher is not charged with pitches thrown in this situation - can't find an answer to that - will keep looking.

(From rule 6.07)
The PROPER batter, (the one who should have batted) is the one who is called out after an appeal is made by the defense AFTER the IMPROPER batter has completed his at-bat. If the appeal is made while the improper batter is at bat, no out is called, the proper batter takes his place and assumes any count.

I am referring to MLB rules. As far as batting out of order. Pitches still must be thrown for the batter to be out, in fact if you bat out of order, you are not out unless the at bat is completed and the other team catches it. If you bat out of order and the at bat is not complete, the correct batter will assume the current count with no infraction occuring. So zero is not the answer.

Curm, 27 is not the answer either.
